Seniors Week reminder

Hi to all of our Wellington, Hutt and Kapiti crafters,

Just a quick reminder regarding a couple of crafting related “Seniors Week” events that are on in the next few days. Feel free to share this with family and friends, and bring them along with you…


The Crafting Group at Seatoun Village Hall are having a “Seniors Week” morning tea at their regular weekly crafting session – tomorrow morning (Thursday 19th October) from 10.00am – 12.00pm. There is a lovely bunch of people that attend the sessions each week, and I’m sure you’ll be made most welcome. If you can’t make it tomorrow, do feel free to join in the fun any other Thursday.

On Saturday 21st October, from 10.00am – 4.00pm, we’ll be supporting the Wellington Central Library’s “Seniors Week” Knit-a-thon. The theme for the day will be Peggy Squares, and we’ll be teaching people to knit and crochet squares, as well as sewing some of the many, many squares that have already been sent in. The completed blankets will be distributed to Womens Refuge and the Night Shelters in and around Greater Wellington.

The Library is providing their usual continuous tea trolley plus some sandwiches and sweets at lunch time. Any contributions towards the food trolley will be most welcome.

If you’re able to come along for some or all of the day, we’d love to see you there.

And remember, you’re always welcome at the monthly crafting session at Wellington Central Library, on the 4th Saturday of each month, from 1.00pm – 4.00pm (excluding December). We have a lot of fun at these sessions – chatting, and sharing crafting tips – and some great friendships have been made. It would be great to see you there.

Take a look at our Events Page to see the other regular crafting events that we are aware of – and if you’re involved in a group and would like us to promote it for you, please drop us a line with the details of where and when, and who the contact person is – we’ll happily add it to our page.

Keep up the great work everybody. 

Yours – with love, compassion and hope.
